iEARN connects "Youth Making a Difference." Since 1988, iEARN has connected schools to enable teachers and students to engage in collaborative Project-Based Learning. Teachers throughout the 95-country network provide content through projects that they propose and facilitate and which meet specific curriculum needs. iEARN enables them to find partners in its on-line educational community, relieving teachers of the need to surf the Internet to find suitable project partners. Projects, including many which involve creative and expository writing and peer editing through WWW-based interactive forums, involve over 500,000 young people each day, working together and demonstrating the power of collaborative learning. With the completion of each project, students undertake an action component, in which students share the learning gained through on-line interaction with their communities through service projects, publications and other action initiatives. Based on this experience, iEARN has been asked by the U.S. Department of Education and the President to bring together organizations which can assist U.S. teachers to link with schools internationally, particularly with those in predominantly Muslim countries. Toward this end, iEARN-USA has launched the "Friendship Through Education." (

"iEARN-USA is pleased to be a partner in Reach Your Peak. Since 1988, iEARN has used telecommunications technologies to empower young people to engage in collaborative international projects, which enable them to express their commitment to improve the quality of life on the planet. Reach Your Peak is a powerful means by which they can express their hopes and act on their dreams. Nothing can create a quality planet more than this."
